Title: PRELIMINARY TEST RESULTS OF A PROTOTYPE FAST KICKER FOR APS MBA UPGRADE

Abstract

The APS multi-bend achromatic (MBA) upgrade storage ring plans to support two bunch fill patterns: a 48-bunch and a 324-bunch. A “swap out” injection scheme is required. In order to provide the required kick to injected beam, to minimize the beam loss and residual oscillation of injected beam, and to minimize the perturbation to stored beam during injection, the rise, fall, and flat-top parts of the kicker pulse must be within a 16.9-ns interval. Stripline-type kickers are chosen for both injection and extraction. We developed a prototype kicker that supports a ±15kV differential pulse voltage. We performed high voltage discharge, TDR measurement, high voltage pulse test and beam test of the kicker. We report the final design of the fast kicker and the test results.
